Up, Up and Away
adventure is out there...
I am someone who has a bold and daring personality. I always have a unique perspective when it comes to my broad range of interests and hobbies. I enjoy new experiences with my friends and family, around people I enjoy spending time with. I believe that everyone should live their life to the fullest because no one knows when it will end. I enjoy doing risky things and conquering my fears because those are the things I will remember the most. I am not the type of person who will have fun bird watching or fishing, I need to be up on my feet travelling and seeing breathtaking experiences. Places I would love to visit the most would be in Europe and Australia since I have never been to both of those places before and they are certainly unique. Life has several offers that come by but some people wait until they are older, or they say "when the time comes" but usually the time never comes. We must plan these things out for ourselves ahead of time so we can enjoy the true gift life has to offer. I am someone who is quick on their feet and enjoys feeling the rush of life, which is why most of the things on my bucket list are adventurous.
Go Bungee Jumping
See the Northern Lights
Visit the Alnwick Castle
Go Ziplining in Gravity Canyon
Zip lining is one of the growing trends recently; several people are checking it off their list. I would personally like to visit and be a part of the zip lining experience at the Gravity Canyon. This is an experience I would hopefully remember to tell my grandchildren about. The thrill of going down just a thin line being held by a harness just for safety and free falling to experience a rush of adventure while seeing beautiful scenery can only be found in New Zealand at Gravity Canyon. This experience would make it all worthwhile if I was to visit New Zealand, with my sisters and brother and not just to go zip lining but to also go sightseeing and see the amazing landscapes. I would also want to go caving at Waitomo Caves, which are for everyone. You can climb, squeeze, and raft through these caves. Rafting is also an activity I want to experience with my siblings where they have fast flowing rivers that take you through forests to the sea. A trip to New Zealand would be one we all would remember for a lifetime and tell our great grandchildren about.
Go Backpacking Across Europe
The backpacking experience is really interesting and unique. Everything you need is in a backpack and you just need a flight to take you to your destination from then on in, it is traveling light, experiencing the walk and scenery Europe has to provide. Walking throughout the cities would allow me to gain an experience I would not forget. I would like to backpack mostly through France. To see the people and culture France has to provide. At the same time I would like the backpack across Greece as it has the most amazing view of the water from some hotel rooms. Backpacking would be adventurous, as it would allow me to grow out of my secure shell traveling through hotels not walking or taking a car everywhere I go. Backpacking would force me to extend my arm and have conversations with people I meet at certain places and learn more about what their life is like. Life is short and the life I live I have become accustomed to, there is a continuous cycle about how it should be and what I should attain as an adult and adolescent. What I fail to experience is learning more about other people living in another society and community. Backpacking would definitely allow me to grow and expand.
There is no better feeling than jumping out of a plane and falling in the sky. The rush one feels is amazing and I certainly want to feel that once at least. The views you can see from that high are a once in a lifetime chance and it looks incredibly unreal, it also allows us to truly admire and recognize the natural beauties of the earth. I want to go skydiving in Byron Bay, Australia, which is known to have one of the best beach towns. Some say you can even spot whales in the beach from that high. I would love to go with my friends or family and enjoy this experience with them if they were up for it. It all sounds crazy; I mean why anyone who loves themselves would want to jump directly out of a plane.
Skydiving is my number one bucket list entry because there are a ton of people who want to do this, including me, they cannot all be crazy. I believe it is one of those experiences that cannot really be explained you just have to go for it. I believe in conquering my fears and taking on challenges because it makes me feel empowering and rewarding. I also want to feel like what it is like to fly; even though it is not really flying it is like falling with style. When you are in the sky you can create formations like circles with other divers or fly horizontally just like birds do in a flock. When skydiving many people have said that they get a profound sense of freedom, every piece of information in your brain is eliminated. You just feel liberated forget about the problems you might be facing in your life. I mean your thousands of feet above the earth from regular people going about their own lives, it sounds pretty cool to me. This is also an experience I would truly never forget, it will be scary, but in the end everyone remembers the scary, risky moments in their life. It will all be worth it.
